thank. thank you, governor palin, for you endorsement. because she got behind -- she got behind us weary folks and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it and she was a vote against the politics of personal distraction. >> let's take a look at the national map to get a sense of how wide the power is. i think, of sarah palin. we got a map like in the election time. look at those greens. there's the primary picks and the green spots are where she picked a winner coast to coast. richard wolfe, that adds up to almost 50 candidates she had a big hand in helping out. when they lose, they can be even better help because they got nothing to do than help you. it's sometimes smarter. we're going to talk about jimmy carter later. he built a campaign by backing people that lost races. >> endorsements, old-style politics. in this new world, she can help raise money. she's mobilizing votes. the shocking thing is how much the republican party has failed to get republicans out to vote. >> turn out in delaware was great. >> the republican base is turning out with surges now. who establis

, you bet ya. thank you governor palin for your endorsement, because she got behind us war-weary folks and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it, and she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction. >> let's look at the national map to get a sense of how wide the power is, i think, of sarah palin. look at the greens. those are the pray mary picks she picked across the country, and numerically, she had 25 wins and 11 losses and seven no contest. that adds up to almost 50 candidates. when they lose, they can be better help to you next time around because they have nothing to do but help you win the next presidential election. it's sometimes smarter. we will talk about jimmy carter. >> in the new world she can help raise money, and the shocking thing is how much the establishment party has failed to get republicans out to vote. the republican base is turning out with these insurgents now. who established the best turnout model for the republicans, george bush? they had a tremendous ability. >> they were church people too, as well. >> they are not speaking to them.

believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they'rl e using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the predent, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, includ ing it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national surity crisis. both of these issues are.yo you have general petraeus getting involved in a dostic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the esident, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> this is so rare in american politics to say this is my religious faith i have to put it

, how appropriate is it clinton to backseat driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b", energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrat, the answer may tell us a lot about november. >>> and you think democrats say a lot of bad things about each other? wait until you hear what eliot spitzer has to say about the fellow democrat who wants his old job, andrew cuomo. but that's in "the sideshow." host "face to face" on our nbc stations in nevada. and the politics editor for msnbc.com. look, we got to start with what happened on capitol hill. here's an exchange between michigan congressman john conyers and stephen colbert today. let's listen. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee room completely and submit your statement instead. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she'd like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm happy to do so. i'm only here on interpretation. >> that is correct. >> that is fair enoug

driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b"," energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrats, the answer that may tell us a lot about what happens in november. you think republicans say nasty things about each other? wait until you hear about eliot spitzer that wants his own job back. that's in the side show. the side show is the lead today. the politics editor for msnbc.com. we have to start with what happened on capitol hill. it's with a michigan kangman and stephen colbert today. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee rom and submit your application in writing. >> i'm here by request from the chairwoman. >> that is correct. >> thank you very much. that's fair enough. >> vaughan, let me start with you. you have been doing this as long as i have, watching the 24/7 news cycle infect congress and now it's gone to a level i don't think any of us ever thought where an actor or comedian decided to go, in character, on capitol

opponents with the same hard shots the republicans and the tea partiers have been using against them. that means going negative. means brutally pointed, honest, devastating negative ads. as oneistrate jest put it, anyone who spends money on a positive ad might as well give money to charity. the democrats are getting tough. that's our top story. >>> plus, what scares you? what's the fear if the republicans grab control of congress? a push to starve the health care bill, another government shutdown to shift spending power to the congress? a relen willing campaign to take down -- relentless campaign to take down president obama? listen to what the republicans are offering up. >>> we got a glimmer of good economic news this morning. the jobless rate ticked up .1% to 9.6%. 9.6, and 54,000 jobs lost overall because of the temporary census bureau jobs coming to an end. but the private sector added 67,000 new jobs. higher than expected. and that offers hope that things are getting better in the real economic world out there. still some democrats are becoming quite worried about ending those
